TGP was appointed to provide landscape and visual impact assessment, landscape design services and artist liaison for a new housing scheme on the site of former lime works, in the village of Coxhoe, County Durham. TGP produced a landscape scheme for two phases of 127 and 55 houses which included a mix of private and social housing.
Under Durham County Council’s percent for art programme the artist David Paton in conjunction with TGP produced a quarry garden themed village green space with stone features that echoed the development of the village around the nearby stone quarry. These features were carved with lines from poems by Elizabeth Barratt Browning who grew up in the now demolished Coxhoe Hall.
The second phase abuts a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and required liaison between developer, landscape architect, ecologist and Durham County Council’s planners and ecologist.
